[ARCHIVED] Danville Storywalk Trail officially opens

The Danville Public Library and Smart Beginnings Danville Pittsylvania County today officially opened the Danville Storywalk Trail, which has been installed on the section of the Riverwalk Trail between American Legion Post 325 Field and the Dan River also known as the Upper Dan Daniel Memorial Park Trail Head. The Storywalk Trail features 20 signs displaying the pages of a story book. Stories will be changed monthly.

“We are thrilled to partner with the Danville Public Library to provide an opportunity for families and children to read together,” said Smart Beginnings Danville Pittsylvania Director Angela Wells. “Incorporating reading into everyday life and making it fun helps children develop literacy skills and become lifelong readers.”

“We are so excited about this trail and the partnership with Smart Beginnings,” said Public Library Director Russell Carter. “We hope this will encourage families to exercise both their mind and bodies; more importantly, we hope families will enjoy not only the story but the beauty of our hometown and will return often for new adventures.”

The StoryWalk Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. Storywalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.
